So we made it for them. 8 singers, 4 dancers, 3 horns, epic rhythm section & live DJ – what a gig!! “Their energy and seamless presentation was one of the key highlights of our two-week wedding celebrations.” Mr Rajiv Singh, father of the bride

We went on Friday to see and hear a great evening of music from nine piece band Souled Out. Great atmosphere, great sound and let’s not forget the great service from our waitress and the usual standard of pizza. The music nights are always worth attending at this place and Friday was no exception. Really enjoyable….

Kelly and David xx Wedding Reception
I can’t thank you enough for an amazing evening. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your band – but I knew they would!! You worked the crowd perfectly I loved the end when you got everyone in a circle, every single person young and old loved it.
When you came onto the stage I heard the gasps of “wow”…. you all looked so professional in your blue suits (and your white suit too!) and the girls were stunning. I tried few times to get to see you but en route I was diverted by guests…. it was the biggest event of Tony’s year and I had no doubt we would rock the golf course! !
Thank you again and please pass my comments and appreciation to the band, every single one was just brilliant. Rest assured you will be asked to do other events!! So look forward to seeing you at concert number 5!!
Cheers and best wishes
Tony and Shirley Bromley Golf Festival
There were a lot of staff out of the office yesterday, so I was waiting until today to get their feedback. Everyone had a great time and I’ve received so many compliments on how great they thought you and the band were – everyone loved you! One of the guys I work with has been here absolutely years and goes to all the Christmas parties and he said this was the best one ever!!
Have a great Christmas and New Year and hope to see you soon. I always keep my eyes peeled on Facebook for your gig announcements.
Clarita De Quiroz is an artist signed by Sony, has been nominated for and received several awards. She has several of her own original songs, one of those below and she performs some fantastic covers live at private and corporate events. She is at ease on stage performing to an adoring audience of thousands as she did with Elton John plus many other or performing an intimate set to a small group of people solo or as part of a band. Clarita is one of the most versatile artists you will find in the Dubai entertainment scene today.
Like any artist worth their salt, Clarita’s music is the result of many things. Raised in Scotland to Filipino/Spanish and Dutch/Irish parents, as a child of the 80’s, it’s no wonder that her music sounds the way it does. Influenced by everyone from Nina Simone and Al Green to The Roots, Angie Stone and Jill Scott. Pinpointing the beginning of her musical career as a child she vividly remembers being mysteriously drawn from her bed to play the piano in her living room from the tender age of four.
Number one album selling UAE classically trained pianist, percussionist, vocalist and model – Clarita de Quiroz has become many things to many people, but no matter what category you put her in, she’ll always find some way of getting out of it. Her affinity with the keys as well as percussion has fuelled a fire that has driven her musical direction as well as igniting a passion for vocals.

“As a musician, I am constantly looking for inspiration through life, friends, experience and other music to help my discovery of my craft. I want to take the colours from all around me in all shapes and forms and transform this into musical composition. Like life, my music will evolve with me; I am constantly exploring for new treasures and experience which will shape my life, as well as my music. In the process of this musical voyage, I wish to touch people in a way that my music resonates through their souls, and reach levels bigger than the eye can see. Escapism, reconnection, emancipation, discovery and all other feelings should come through all of us with everything we love and are passionate about. It’s great to listen to music, but to FEEL it, is what I am talking about. Where words end, music speaks. And I thank you, and you all know who you are, for helping me shape my life this way and making become the woman I am today, tomorrow and for the rest of my years”
Book Behold The Locus today with Dubai Party Bands.
Behold The Locus is a collective of Dubai based musicians-a ‘revolving door’ if you will where Members don’t quit-they exit to make way for someone else to share the Locus experience!
Locus (Latin for Place) is an indirect tribute to Dubai where the band members have spent many a year working day jobs and confronting their alter ego(s) at night.
Behold The Locus started with guitarist and songwriter Fabian Martin playing solo at the Central Perk Acoustic jams organized by Dubai Lime, with the progress of the Original Music scene Venues got bigger and the need to form a band started….
The line-up has changed several times since its inception in 2006 and the current line-up includes Fabian Martin (Guitar/Song writer) Alistair Terry (Bass Guitar) Carl Semine (Vocals) and Ramzi Sassi (Drums)
The band does not subscribe to a particular genre and label themselves ‘Musique sans Frontieres’
Fabian was introduced to The Beatles as a kid and formed his first band at the age of 13 playing Punk versions of classic Beatles tunes; he started Behold The Locus as a solo project in 2006 after many failed attempts to form a Band in Dubai. Fabian collects Retro Guitars and boasts of a Fender Jaguar, Gretsch Electromatic, Squier Duo Sonic and an Epiphone Korina Flying V.
Alistair’s musical journey began when he picked up the guitar at the age of 15. His influence includes Jaco Pastorius, Sting, Billy Sheehan and Abraham Laboriel and prefers playing a five- string over a four-string bass. He has a great sense of Humor and admits to once waiting an hour for a taxi forgetting that he bought a car the week before.
Carl is the youngest in the band and a force to be reckoned with, when he’s not singing he’s doing sports, when he’s not doing sports he’s playing guitar. He is just as comfortable crooning Bruno Mars as he is growling to As I Lay dying.
Fresh from Tunisia, Ramzi moved to Dubai and almost instantly landed an audition with Behold The Locus through a mutual friend of the band, his fluency in French, Arabic and English translates into a blitzkrieg assault on the drums, and we feel for the instrument.
